Haas F1’s Mick Schumacher took to the Silverstone Circuit on Tuesday in a specification of the car his father made his Formula 1 debut 30 years prior, the Jordan 191.
Schumacher was filming a feature with Sky Sports F1’s Karun Chandhok ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix, where his father made his F1 debut in 1991.
It’s not the first time Mick has stepped into one of his father’s former F1 cars. At Spa-Francorchamps in 2017, he drove the Benetton B194, the infamous car which secured the first of Michael’s seven World Championships.
At the 2019 German Grand Prix and 2020 Tuscan Grand Prix, the 22-year-old demonstrated the Ferrari F2004.
Mick is currently in his debut season of F1 with Haas F1 having won the FIA Formula 2 title in 2020.
Designed by the well-renowned Gary Anderson, the 191 was the first F1 car for Jordan Grand Prix which was driven by Andrea De Cesaris and Bertrand Gachot.
After an altercation with a London taxi driver, Gachot was held in police custody which meant Eddie Jordan had to find a replacement driver ahead of the 1991 Belgian Grand Prix.
Jordan approached Schumacher – who was a works Mercedes sportscar driver at the time – to drive the car on the belief the German knew the circuit – which he didn’t.
Despite having no track knowledge, Schumacher qualified seventh, but his race would only last just three corners after clutch issues ended his race.
Mick drove the No.33 car, which was designated to De Cesaris, as the No.32 car currently resides within the MotorWorld family museum in Cologne.
